As the section omitted, however,
ii only 80 miles, and covin ground
whieh everybody knowt, ill omitiion
does not matter mueb. Mr. Moberly
says of this route by Canoe River and
Tett Jaune Cache, which it practically
lhl same ai tht rontt ws bavt all

Columbia Valley:        ..

of travel through tbe country hers

undoubtedly a route to bs made at
comparatively small cost for pick
horsei ind over whioh a riilwiy
eonld bs conitructed which would
run through thi gold belt sll ths wsy.
It ii prohibit tbit miny prospector!
who htvt studied thi gold country ot
tht West tnd who in heading for tbt
Klondikt will look to this routs which
offtn tbs but chance for rich ditcovtr-
itt tn route.
���'Between the junction of tbt Findlay and Ptace Riven ind Klondikt ita

900 miles in length, that lias not as

X o Name on Earth ae Famous
-���No Name More Widely
No name on earth, perhaps, is io
well known, more peculiarly constructed or more widely imitated
than the word DODD. It possesses a peculiarit/ that makes it
stand out prominently and
fastens it in the memory. It contains four letters, but only two letters
of the alphabet. Everyone know! that
the lirst kidney remedy ever patented
or sold was named DODD'S. Their
disco' ery startled the medical profusion ihe world over,and revolutionized
the treatment of kidney diseaaei, ,
No imitaior hai ever succeeded in
constructing a name possessing the
peculiarity of DODD, though they
nearly all adopt names as similar as
possible in the sound und construction
of thii. Their foolishness prevents
them realising that atteinps to imitate
increase the fame of Dodd'i Kidney
Why is the name "Dodd's Kidney
Pills" imitated? Ai well uik why ire
diamonds and gold imitated. Because
diamonds are the most precious gems,
.old the most precious metal. Dodd's
Kidney Pills are imitated because they
are the most valuable medicine the
world has ever known.
No medicine was ever named kidney
uilli iill years of medical research
gave Dodd's Kidney Pills to the world
No medicine ever cured Brighi'i dis
MM except Dodd'i Kidney Pills. No
other medicine hu cured ill many
cases of Rheumatism, Diabetes. Heart
Disease, Lumbago, Dropsy, Fepiali-
weakness, and other kidnty diseases
il Dodd'i Kidney Pills have. Ii is
universally known that they have
never failed to cure these diseases,
hence they are so widely and sham-
leesly imitated. 24ltr
